General Guidelines

Merrimack College partners with Credentials Inc. to provide students with access to an online ordering system through a secure website.

All financial obligations to Merrimack College must be met before an official transcript can be released. Transcripts may not be picked up by a third party unless the student has given written authorization with the request. A photo ID is required for transcript pick-up.

Currently enrolled matriculated students may order transcripts using the Transcript Request Form. There is no fee for currently enrolled matriculated students.
